    Screw clutchmasters. IF you want something that lasts buy the best...

    Get the ACT HDSS kit. I forgot the exact kit number but the Heavy duty pressure plate with the modified street clutch is the best clutch I or my friends have ever felt on a civic. This clutch needs a bit more leg strength to push in but hey dont be a pussy.

    If you want quality you have to pay for it...

    Alright if i go with ACT would you recommend HDSS or XTSS? Do you think the XT would be too strong? Also what kind of flywheel should i get. Are unorthodox flywheels any good and will they work with an ACT clutch? I really dont have a buget so any price range. Thanks

    I would personally go with the HDSS setup just for the fact that the XT pressure plates have snapped a bunch of my friends stock axles. The XT pressure plate is a VERY powerful pressure plate and without a little finess it's pretty easy to break an axle. The HD grips like a motha and will hold anything you throw at it. I would love to give you a first hand experience with it but the damn car isn't back from the shop yet...I hate my mechanic.... <_<
